Spring of our Speech

"Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good… Thy name, O LORD, endureth forever; and Thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations" (Psalm 135:3,13).  "The commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life" (Proverbs 6:23).  "Lift up thy voice like a trumpet… and the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought… and thou shalt be… like a spring of water, whose waters fail not" (Isaiah 58:1,11).  "God is not the Author of confusion" (1 Corinthians 14:33).   

We praise the Lord, for He is good;
We see this by the things He's done. 
We thank our God, and rightly should,
For Christ our Savior, His own Son.

The light of truth is God's command
To show the lost there is a choice.   
He sends us forth to every land
Like trumpeters who lift their voice. 

The Lord will guide us day by day
With truth that purges every doubt
To give us words that we should say,
Like springs of water in the drought.

You're not the Author of confusion,
But rather, Lord, You are the Spring
Of speech exposing strong delusion
To prove the Gospel that we bring.
